[Histochemical tracing of the iron in the body of piglets injected with an iron-dextran preparation].

[Article in Bulgarian]


A comparative study was carried out with thirteen pigs, aged 1 to 3 days, to follow up the resorption and distribution of the Bulgarian iron-dextran preparations Ferdex-100, Dextrofer-75, A-100, and Miofer-100 in the body. Histochemically, an activation of the reticulo-endothelial system was established. Most macrophages that had phagocytised iron were established in the regional lymph nodes, followed by the liver, kidneys, marrow, while in the spleen their count was negligible. Using the histochemical reaction for the demonstration of iron in the viscera it was established that the A-100 preparation was best utilized by the organism. It was concluded that by the amounts of iron found in some organs it even exceeded Miofer-100.
